Note: There is a $10.00 drop fee for each course dropped.

S - This grade is given primarily for credit through “Prior Learning Assessment and Alternative studies.” It reflects hours being earned toward graduation but has no bearing on the Student’s Grade Point Average (GPA).

I - Indicates that additional work must be done to receive a passing grade for the course or program.

N - This grade may be given to those who are not taking the course for credit. This grade may be changed to a standard letter grade if the appropriate additional fees are paid and all work for the course completed.

WP - This indicates that the student has officially withdrawn from a course and was passing at the time of withdrawal. A “WP” is not calculated as part of the student’s Grade Point average (GPA).

WF - This indicates that the student was officially withdrawn from a course and was failing at the time of withdrawal. No refund will be given for a WF.

    B         80 - 89
    C         70 - 79
    D         60 - 69

Comments & News

We thank God for CTS as it provides us with the opportunity to study on-line while we travel as missionaries in Eastern Europe. As we looked at several ways to continue our studies we did not find a suitable format until we were introduced to CTS. Since we started our studies we have been blessed with the lesson material. Our opinions are challenged and being saved for more than 30 years, we  realize that there is still a lot to learn.  We hope to partner with CTS in our mission work as we conduct training sessions here in Eastern Europe.
